Diane, thank you for sharing this experience with us along with ways we can pray. When I started reading this, I wondered if you met with Abara representatives. A very dear friend of mine works for Abara and it's possible you even met him - Nate Ledbetter. He's an inspiring soul with a heart for justice. Grace and peace. ~ Margie Brenner

That's so awesome that you met Nate! I worked with him at Mars Hill Bible Church (Grandville) back in the day. If I go to El Paso, he might not let me return to Michigan as he'd probably want me to work for him :) One day, I'll meet up with him and his family again. I love to hear him speak about the things he's most passionate about. I've been following Abara on the socials since he was hired. I'm so glad you wrote this article and are helping to educate the rest of us on such an important topic. The hands and feet of Jesus, you are. 

We want to hear from you.
